“ELEVEN troopers?”

Return to Fort Justice BannerPreviously: “You have lawmen here?”

“We did, until he was killed. We now rely on the cavalry to keep the peace.”

“We’re not without experience in peacekeeping,” Sarah said, “Perhaps that’s a better opportunity?”

“Pardon me, Ma’am,” Vance laughed, “But, two of you are women.”

Jay Cooper sighed as he thought, “Oh no—you shouldn’t have gone there…”

And finally—The Adventure Train pulled in to Fort Justice… “Wow! This place looks deserted!”

“It certainly does, Boomer,” Mac replied, “Time of day?”

“I doubt it, but I guess we’d better head for the fort and check-in with the colonel.”

“I don’t think we’ll be very happy with what he has to say.”

Season 12—Adventure 2—Return to Fort Justice—Episode 6… Except for one small problem—Lt. Colonel Cooper was not in the fort! In fact, there were only four troopers—commanded by a corporal, “Where is the colonel?”

“He rode out two days ago with 20 troopers”

“He rode out two days ago with 20 troopers.

“He rode out two days ago with 20 troopers. I’m Corporal Jenson—he left me in charge. He said help was coming—we were expecting more troopers.”

“How many troopers do you have?” Mac asked.

“Jest me, Nils Jenson and Privates Jeb Woolery, Samuel Jones, Peter Wilson, and Many Trees, Marshal.”

“We’ll leave First Sergeant Boomer & Corporal Daisy with you…”

AGAIN?” Boomer interrupted, “I gotta wear stripes again?”

“Yes,” Mac grinned, “I know you packed your cavalry gear—go get dressed for your new command. Now, Corporal, where was the colonel going?”

“He didn’t say specifically, but he mentioned some trouble at one of the silver mines—I would guess at the Simpson mine.”

“Adelbert Samuel Simpson, Jr.?”

“Yeah, that’s the fella.”

“I know where that mine is—thanks corporal.”

A short time later Mac and his “troop” rode out leaving Boomer and Daisy behind with his command.

“ELEVEN troopers make up his force?”

“ELEVEN troopers make up his force”

Corporal Jenson watched as they left and muttered, “ELEVEN troopers make up his force.”

“Too many?” Boomer quipped.

As soon as they were out of earshot of the fort, “Flutters?”

“Yes, Mac—I’ll go find Colonel Cooper.”

“Excuse me, Mac—why is that bird so cooperative?”

“Ah—Sar-Major Yatkov,” Mac replied, “Because Boomer and Daisy aren’t with us for him to tease.”

“How far to the mine?”

“We’re not going there,” Mac replied, “Not yet, anyway.”

Meanwhile—In North Fort Justice… Chris and Sarah had their weapons drawn and pointed at Vance in less than an eye-blink, “Any more questions—sir?”

“No ma’am,” Vance replied to Chris, “You’ve convinced me.”

“Very-well,” Sarah grinned, “We’re now the law in North Fort Justice.”

At the same time—somewhere on the Kansas plains…

Somewhere on the Kansas plains

Somewhere on the Kansas plains

There were at least a hundred of them—probably more…
